A very hearty stout with a coffee and Oat forward taste and a slight bitter dry finish form the chocolate. I can't think of a better beer in this style.

This was my first Stout, wasn't sure how it would taste. It was a strong at first taste but, enjoyed it. I tasted my coffee than chocolate - no complaints. Anxious to try more Stouts.

Almost like a mocha milkshake, smell is only second to the taste. This is not only one of the best stouts I've ever had, but one of my top beers for sure. On top of the normal stout maltiness, this beer sets its self apart from other coffee/chocolate/oatmeal stouts. These flavors both stand out individually and mix well as part of the whole. Very little head in my case but still highly carbonated, which I enjoyed. Little to no alcohol taste. Drink it! I'll be having one for breakfast tomorrow morning.
